Kreutzman on drums adds more of a structured sound and allows for a maturity to exist in a new rendition of the band. Same can be said for David Nelson on guitar who brings his New Riders steeze, as well as his backing band (Mookie Segal, Barry Sless) to give a sometimes incredibly mellow show, and sometimes incredibly spacey show. Both are highlights.
Set 1: Has a full That's It For The Other One, vocally it sound silly during The Other one when Nelson does backing vocals for Phil, he sounds like a voicebox. Nelson band songs such as Chosen One are most certainly welcome.
Mississippi Half Step is sorrowfull, beautiful, and turned into a country ballad in memory of Jerry. Between Phil's vocals on this and the Sless/Nelson interplay after verse 3, we can see old friends bringing this beautiful new rendition to light for their fallen brother. Phil's Rio Grandio/Lazy River vocal bridge is superb! By Far the highlight of the album.
China DOll has a rough intro but shapes itself nicley once the band decides what to do. Phil vocals are welcome, but also make us remember that no one does it like Jerr Berr.
Cumberland is hoppin' with some slick Mookie Piano riffs and solid David Nelson vocals. Nice countried out version throwing back to Workingman's days.
Wizards Son is a chance for Mookie, Kimock, and Sless to go berserk and lead into a nice trippy intro to the Wheel.
The Wheel has some HARD Phil bombs and despite a vocal flub between Phil and David in the first verse, is solid as ever in P&F. This is rare for the wheel which is sort of the common fuck-up of P&F.
Dark Star which can sometimes be boring considering who Phil's "friends" are is awsome here with the entire band contributing equally. One moment Billy K. and Phil seem to lock into rhythmic weaving which was great to here again.
Morning Dew bored me with the Dead and it hasn't changed now.
So I gave this show 5 stars not because of its "perfection" per-se but because of the soundboard quality which is never crappy (THanks Phil) and the group interplay of old friends which makes us remember how many wonderful musicians followed in the original band's footsteps after Jerry's demise. A great snag for any P&F or New Riders fan.
